VOLTA New York is the American incarnation of the original Basel show. Since its 2008 debut it has operated as a beacon for creative discovery and social engagement during Armory Arts Week. New York focuses on solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. In 2020 we will return to New York with the original “boutique-style” concept for a more immersive fair experience.
VOLTA showcases contemporary art positions in an approachable way accessible to younger art-lovers and seasoned collectors alike. It promotes their galleries’ exhibition styles “at home” while refocusing the fair-going experience back on its most fundamental point: the artists and their works.
